While the South Korean giant Samsung is preparing to launch its next-generation Galaxy Note series smartphone, we are already getting leaks related to the company’s next year’s Galaxy S-series flagship smartphone.
Earlier, there were reports that the Galaxy S10 could come with narrow bezels surrounding the display and a concept video was also released by ‘Concept Creator’ that showcased a similar design. Now, leakster Ice Universe has posted an image of a smartphone with extremely narrow bezels.
While the post doesn’t explicitly mention the Samsung Galaxy S10, he refers to the design as “beyond” which is the codename that Samsung is using to develop its upcoming flagship smartphone. The image shows that Samsung intends to take the Infinity Display concept to another level with extremely narrow bezels surrounding the display.
Interestingly, the leaked image, which shows the phone’s front panel, indicates that there won’t be a notch on top of the display, a concept that most of the smartphone manufacturer seems to have accepted for the flagship smartphones this year.
With such narrow bezels, there’s no space to accommodate sensors and in the leaked image also, no sensors are visible. There’s a possibility that the company has opted to keep the sensors under the display. Earlier reports related to the device also suggested that it could come with an under-display fingerprint sensor.
Another possibility is the company could opt for a smartphone design similar to the Oppo Find X with pop-out modules. It will be interesting to see how the company tackles this issue.
Recent reports indicate that the phone will come with a 6.2-inch display capable of emitting sound. Samsung had showcased its sound-emitting display concept at the Society of Information Displays (SID) 2018 where instead of an earpiece, the vibration and bone conduction of the display panel carries the sound.
Further, it is also speculated that the Galaxy S10 with triple cameras to rival with the upcoming Apple iPhone X Plus that is rumored to come with three cameras. The Galaxy S10 could also be Samsung’s first phone to come with 3D facial recognition similar to iPhone X and Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition.
The Samsung Galaxy S10, expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 855 chipset, may get officially announced in January 2019. If the company actually launches Galaxy S10 with such screen-to-body ratio, the company could have a winner on its hands.
